DfE Meaning

The EPA allows safer products to carry the Design for the Environment (DfE) label. This mark allows consumers to quickly identify and choose products that can help protect the environment and are safer for families.

When you see the DfE logo on a product it means:

  • The DfE scientific review team has screened each ingredient for potential human health and environmental effects
  • The product contains only those ingredients that pose the least concern among chemicals in their class based on currently available information, EPA predictive models, and expert judgment.

Product manufacturers who become DfE partners and earn the right to display the DfE logo on recognized products have invested heavily in research, development, and reformulation to ensure that their ingredients and finished product line up on the green end of the health and environmental spectrum, while maintaining or improving product performance.

How does DfE makes sure that products bearing the label are really safer?

If you would like a little more (technical) information, please read on!

DfE is located in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT). OPPT has regulated chemicals for more than 30 years and has unique expertise in understanding the impacts of chemicals on people and the environment.
